Police are renewing an appeal for public assistance after two children were assaulted and multiple homes broken into at Kingscliff last week.

About 11.30pm on Tuesday 2 June 2015, a man was disturbed after breaking into a unit on Lorien Way. He fled empty-handed.

A short time later, a man attempted to break into another home on Lorien Way. He was disturbed by the residents and fled.

In the third incident, about 12.30am (Wednesday 3 June 2015), police were called to a home on Pearl Street after a man broke in. The man assaulted a 15-year-old boy inside the home.

About 2am a 12-year-old girl was indecently assaulted by an intruder at another Pearl Street home.

Family members disturbed the man and he fled.

Police from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command have conducted extensive inquiries in an attempt to identify and locate the man involved.

Investigators have released a computer-generated image of a man they would like to speak with.

He’s described as being of Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander appearance, aged in his late 20s or early 30s, about 180cm to 185cm tall and with short dark hair with bushy eyebrows.

As inquiries continue, members of the public are advised to stay vigilant with their home security, keeping doors and windows locked and secured.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
